F. Paul Wilson is an author, born in Jersey City, New Jersey. He writes novels and short stories primarily in the science fiction and horror genres. His debut novel was Healer (1976). Wilson is also a part-time practicing family physician. He made his first sales in 1970 to Analog and continued to write science fiction throughout the seventies. In 1981 he ventured into the horror genre with the international bestseller, The Keep, and helped define the field throughout the rest of the decade. In the 1990s he became a true genre hopper, moving from science fiction to horror to medical thrillers and branching into interactive scripting for Disney Interactive and other multimedia companies. He, along with Matthew J. Costello, created and scripted FTL Newsfeed which ran daily on the Sci-Fi Channel from 1992-1996.
Stephen King is the author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. His recent work includes Doctor Sleep and Under the Dome, now a major TV miniseries on CBS. His novel 11/22/63 was named a top ten book of 2011 by The New York Times Book Review and won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Mystery/Thriller as well as the Best Hardcover Book Award from the International Thriller Writers Association. He is the recipient of the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He lives in Bangor, Maine, with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.
Mort Castle has won three Bram Stoker Awards, two Black Quills, a Golden Bot, and has been nominated for an Audie, the International Horror Guild Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the Pushcart Prize. He’s edited or authored 17 books, more than 500 shorter works, and many comic books. Recent titles: ANNOTATED CLASSICS: DRACULA; SHADOW SHOW (the graphic novel); and the Leapfrog Fiction contest winner KNOWING WHEN TO DIE, a short story collection. He’s been married for 45 years (to Jane) and a publishing writer for almost 50.
Scott Edelman has published more than 85 short stories in such magazines and anthologies as The Twilight Zone, Dark Discoveries, MetaHorror, THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF MONSTERS, and many others. His collection of zombie fiction, WHAT WILL COME AFTER, released in 2010, was a finalist for both the Stoker Award and the Shirley Jackson Memorial Award. His science fiction short fiction has been collected in WHAT WE STILL TALK ABOUT. He has been a Bram Stoker Award finalist six times. Additionally, Edelman worked for the Syfy Channel for more than thirteen years as editor of Science Fiction Weekly, SCI FI Wire, and Blastr. He was the founding editor of Science Fiction Age, which he edited during its entire eight-year run. He has been a four-time Hugo Award finalist for Best Editor.

Tom Monteleone has published more than 100 short stories and 40+ books. He is a 4-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award in four different categories—novel, collection, anthology, and non-fiction—and he’s pretty sure no one else has ever done that. Many of his novels have been optioned for films; he’s written scripts for stage, screen, and TV. He is also wrote the bestselling THE COMPLETE IDIOT’S GUIDE TO WRITING A NOVEL (now in a 2nd edition). SUBMERGED is his latest novel. With his wife, Elizabeth, he lives in Maryland. Despite losing much of his hair, he still believes he is dashingly handsome—humor him.

He’s also editor-in-chief of Fungasm Press, championing genre-melting authors like Laura Lee Bahr, Violet LeVoit, Autumn Christian, Danger Slater, Cody Goodfellow, and Devora Gray. From splatterpunk founding father to bizarro elder statesman, Skipp has influenced a generation of horror and counter-culture artists around the world. His latest book is THE ART OF HORRIBLE PEOPLE.

The royalties continue to keep him in “cigarettes and nylons” – even though he quit smoking and never did drag. He also wrote several paranormal romances, most notably IN FLESH AND STONE. His upcoming thrillers paint classic “noir” with a lavender glaze. Hal is married to a wonderful man, half his age, who never knew that Liza Minnelli was Judy Garland’s daughter.

Johnson is the first Written Backwards DARWA Voice Award-winner whose fiction pops up in cool places, such as Space & Time Magazine, TALES OF THE UNANTICIPATED, QUALIA NOUS, and all three volumes of the award-winning CHIRAL MAD series. He has published three novellas, most recently in I CAN TASTE THE BLOOD (along with Josh Malerman, Joe Schwartz, J. Daniel Stone, and John F.D. Taff). He’s definitely going to have a book of short stories published in the near future and he’s working on a novel and in a coal mine, going down down down. Kick Out the Jams, do other stuff when it suits you, yeah alright.
